BLN Webinar: Identifying and Addressing Challenges in Deploying an Electronic Registry - The Ghana Health Service Experience
The BID Learning Network (BLN) invites you to watch this month’s webinar entitled “Identifying and Addressing Challenges in Deploying an Electronic Registry: The Ghana Health Service Experience." Introducing electronic registries in sub-Saharan Africa where internet connectivity and electricity are not always reliable, come with a lot of challenges, including errors and compromised data quality. In this webinar, the presenter shares how the Ghana Health Service has developed an e-registry within the District Health Information Management System 2 to collect, manage and analyze transactional case-based records at the community level for maternal and child health as well as TB management services.Read More

US study confirms effectiveness of quadrivalent human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine in women aged up to 20 years who receive all three doses, but more research is needed in women aged 21-26 years. For women aged 14-20 years, catch-up HPV vaccination—offered if American women miss the recommended vaccination series at 11-12 years—is effective against the risk of important cervical precancers if women receive all three doses, according to a population case-control study of over 25000 people published in The Lancet Child & Adolescent Health journal.
Our Guiding Principles
This initiative has been built around the following key principles to help ensure its success:
- Utilize a coordinated approach.
- Country ownership and capacity development.
- Strategic reuse.
- Research, monitoring and evaluation.
